i approve this message because congress doesn't need another right winger. they need someone who can balance a budget. oh, and we definitely didn't need so many government studies. from nbc news world headquarters in new york, this is "nbc nightly news" with lester holt. good evening everyone. just before coming on the air tonight we've received word that a british hostage has apparently been murdered execution style by his isis captors in another videotape beheading. the video surfaced on the internet late today showing what appears to be 44-year-old aid worker david hans leading a statement. it's not been published by british or american authorities. it appeared on the internet just
day after his family issued a public plea to his captors. nbc's kristen welker is monitoring this new development and joins us from the white house. >> reporter: lester, nbc news has learned tonight of a videotape released by the official media wing of isis purportedly showing the beheading of british hostage david hanes, as you said, 44 been held captive since 2013 when it is believed he was taken from the turkish/syrian border. the white house has not commented. this comes hours after his family released a statement appealing to his captors. the statement reads in part, we are the family of david hanes. we have sent messages to you of which we have not received a reply. we are asking those holding david for response. isis is responsible for killing james foley and steven sotloff. the obama administration has embarked on what the white house spokesman is calling a war against isis. the u.s. has launched about 160 air strikes against isis targets
in iraq and is expected syria will be next. the terrorist group is headquartered in that country. the administration has been working to build an international coalition to defeat the group. secretary kerry crisscrossing the middle east to get arab allies on board. it is unlikely they will commit their armies. president obama continues to insist no u.s. boots on the ground. this latest incident could heighten the international outrage over this group. lester. >> all right, kristen, thanks. for more on this breaking news let's turn to nbc's richard engel. he's on the ground in iraq tonight. richard, why would isis put out this awful video at a time when the u.s. is putting together a coalition to attack them? it almost seems like they're baiting the west here. >> reporter: well, i think the isis group has two objectives in this. one, this is a warning to arab nations to neighboring countries not to get involved, especially turkey. turkey has many of its diplomats who are being held hostage by
isis. and it is a message to turkey saying if turkey joins this coalition, this is going to happen to its diplomats. bu there is also message to the united states to great britain egging on a fight while isis believes that it can survive american air strikes, that there is no real ground force to push isis away. and it believes that if american air strikes come, the group will gain a tremendous amount of prestige. remember just a few months ago this was a not very well-known group. it controlled some territory in syria. now it has become a popular terrorist franchise around the world. even eclipsing al qaeda. if you look online, a few years ago all the want-to-be terrorist groups, all the aspiring groups associated themselves with al qaeda. now all the franchises want to be just like isis. >> richard engel on the ground for us in iraq tonight. thanks. for more on how the administration plans to attack the threat of isis, let's bring
in chuck todd, moderator of "meet the press." chuck, i know it's early, but this murder of david hanes doesn't make the president's job easier in trying to form this coalition to go after isis? >> certainly, look, it was the american beheadings that galvanized the country over the last ten days and why the country is essentially backing some sort of strikes against isis to take on isis. so as far as the political dynamics in washington, they've already been there, the public's there, congress is there. the question is -- and that's the -- what richard just brought up, so far secretary kerry has had a very hard time finding coalition members that will actually contribute combat troops. you cannot defeat isis in syria without combat troops. the u.s. does not want it to be theirs. and if you don't have turkey, if you don't have saudi arabia, if you don't have jordan committing to those combat troops, then you're not going to succeed against isis. i think that seems to be the big challenge for the administration
even as the threat of isis clearly is now more and more public all the time. >> all right. chuck, thanks very much. i know you're working on your program. we'll have much more on this topic tomorrow morning on "meet the press". when we come back, tonight's other major news, a scandal, a when we come back, tonight's other major news, a scandal, a se ♪ [music] defiance is in our bones. defiance never grows old. citracal maximum. easily absorbed calcium plus d.

scandal for the league after its admitted mishandling of the ray rice case. nbc's peter alexander has developments on both those fronts for us tonight. >> reporter: hailed as one of the best running backs in nfl history, adrian peterson turned himself in texas this morning charged with injury to a child, reckless and criminal neglect. he's accused of abusing his 4-year-old son by hitting him with a small wooden switch, a small tree branch. >> we take all allegations of abuse against children very seriously. >> reporter: in a statement peterson's attorney quickly downplayed the charge calling the 29-year-old a loving father, adding he used the same kind of discipline with his child as he experienced as a child in east texas. he never intended to harm his son and deeply regrets the unintentional injury. peterson posted $15,000 bond and was released. but his team, the minnesota vikings, benched him for tomorrow's game. his image still prominently displayed on the ticket.
>> i would argue that there's no time in the history of the nfl where this information coming out would be worse for adrian peterson than this week. >> reporter: today, ray rice was welcomed back to the sidelines at a high school football game in new rochelle, new york, his alma mater. his arm wrapped around his wife. their 2-year-old daughter raven named for his former baltimore team in tow. >> ray, is there anything you want to say to your fans? >> huh? >> reporter: no comment. it's the couple's first public appearance since the tmz sports video showing rice hitting his then-fiancee valentine's day weekends. rice's former coach offered unwavering support. >> the mistake he made will be erased by the good deeds he will continue to do and because of the good deeds that he has done. new rochelle high school will always be ray rice's home. >> reporter: scrutiny of the nfl's handling of the domestic violence case has exploded. and the controversy isn't going away with the carolina panthers
greg hardy expected to play tomorrow despite his conviction in july for assaulting and threatening to kill his girlfriend. >> some girl is getting her -- beat upstairs. and i heard it. and i seen it. he is beating her -- right now. so get here now. >> reporter: hardy's appealing the conviction. >> it was a mind blowingly terrible week for the nfl. and it had nothing to do with the football. >> reporter: 42 nfl players have been arrested for domestic violence in the last eight years. that's according to usa today. three quarters of them faced no disciplinary action, just a handful were cut by their teams. that is the backdrop for the nfl, lester, heading into another full slate of games tomorrow. >> peter alexander tonight, thanks. now to an update on the severe respiratory virus striking mainly children in more and more parts of the country, 16 states including some in the northeast are now investigating suspected cases of those the cdc confirmed the virus in six states. more than 1,000 kids have
